Adust Footer Height

My site footer is huge! I would like it only large enough to display the social menu.

Have checked other posts but still not making much progress. Also, not sure if it may be caused by widgets. For example, perhaps it is inappropriate/unnecessary to use a widget for the copyright info.
Here it is

Hello there,

Try adding this CSS code to Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS from dashboard.

    .footer-widgets {
      padding-top: 5px;
      padding-bottom: 5px;
    }

    .footer-widgets .sidebar-column .widget:last-child {
      margin-bottom: 0;
    }

That is definitely an improvement @kharisblank. And I thank you. But still seems to be about twice as much height as is needed for contents.

Hello there,

Do you have a screenshot with descriptive annotations to share to me? This would help us understand it better.

Here you go Kharis.

I guess I would also like to lose the bottom margin.

Hello there,

Try adding this code:

    .footer-widgets.widget-area .widget {
      padding-top: 0;
      margin-bottom: 0;
    }

Kharis, you are the best! So helpful and tireless-- responding on New Years Day…

This is a great improvement. At the risk of being greedy, is it possible to eliminate the margin indicated below?
